This was our third stop in Goa and can only use this stay as a comparison to the other two...
On arrival, the greeting we received was met with confusion, as the staff at Spice were unsure of who we were, even though we had booked on line! After recognising our booking, we were handed our keys and guided to our room promptly.
Our sea view room with balcony was okay. Not the clearest view, as obstructed by trees but you could just about see the sea! However, especially lovely, in the morning to draw your curtains open to...
Room was satisfactory. Beach was only seconds away!
Food was great and the staff, after making an effort to have conversation with, were friendly and polite.
Wi-fi was NOT available/connected during our 4 day stay.
Our overall stay at Spice was satisfactory but we feel improvements can be made, hence the review. We felt that on arrival, there wasn't anyone who took charge, hence the confusion. Furthemore, whether it was a lack of communication or not, we were not fully briefed, when we first arrived, on any amenities or services the hotel had to offer. Had this been done, perhaps we could've realised that we didn't have to pay each time for our breakfast, as was included in the price of our stay! However, this too was an oversight on our side, as missed on the small print that breakfast was included. Still strange why staff accepted our cash each time we had breakfast though? (A guesstimation refund of 250 rupees was made. Probably should've been nearer 1000 rupes but they had no proof of receipts, as they don't write customers name on the biils)
After a couple of days into our stay, we met a lovely lady, who apparently was in charge of the hotel's guests! Such a warm welcome! We were asked if all okay and if there was anything we needed....Oh how we wished she was there on our arrival!

Stayed here for just under a fortnight. I met one of the owners when I checked in who was ever so lovely, and all the staff were really helpful and the service was brilliant. India was a culture shock for me personally but the hotel was clean and well kept, the room fine but basic compared to western standards. Nevertheless the price reasonable and location was great, literally could watch the sunset off my balcony.

Hotel in a beautiful location, the staff is very helpful and pleasant. To the beach a few minutes. Rooms are clean. Great food at the restaurant. Hotel organize a taxi for a good price. Shanti massage salon near the hotel. The taxi drive to the waterfall, which is 2-3 hours drive from hotel.
We recommend to all.

You really notice when you get good service and you definitely get it here. Great food from breakfast to dessert. Ended up eating almost every meal here during our stay. Rooms and host were lovely too.

This was our favourite restaurant during our 5 nights in Mandrem at the end of our 6 week Indian trip. Cocktails were dangerously good and the waiter that we had on both our visits was charming and courteous. Lovely restaurant with subdued lighting and nice atmosphere. Highly recommended.
